4) Installing (Windows Mobile)
On Mac and other desktops, use the Palm Installer (sometime called Quick Install) to install all the .prc and .pdb files
to your handheld's main memory. If the Palm Desktop is installed properly, you can usually double-click on
.prc and .pdb files to install them.
Windows Mobile downloads are in .CAB (cabinet) format that can be directly downloaded and run on your handheld or
Windows Mobile smartphone.
If you download them onto your PC, you'll have to transfer them to your handheld using ActiveSync and launch
them on the handheld with the File Explorer:
1) Connect your handheld to your PC and Sync using ActiveSync
2) Click on the "explore" button in the ActiveSync window
3) A window will open showing the contents of the handheld
4) Drag the .CAB file into a convenient folder on the handheld
5) Launch File Explorer** (aka File Manager) on the handheld
6) Run the .CAB file to install the application
** On a few SmartPhones, File Explorer may not be present. On these, you may alternatively transfer the
.CAB file directly into a specific start menu folder (such as \Storage\windows\Start Menu\Accessories)
and launch them from the phone's start menu.
